Build Log: Project IAMEXTREME

post #1 of 72
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, been a long ass time since i posted on here with a build log. Well better late than never right? So lets get started.

For those who are new, here are links of my previous build logs on OCN

http://www.overclock.net/t/983128/project-iamextreme-sr-2-build

http://www.overclock.net/t/776531/project-pcxtremists-tj-07-build

This is the main thing...my main rig thats gonna be used for all the time consuming, processor crunching, gpu intensive excel calculations that i do:p (excel is quite a resource heavy program you know:p)

Anyways, I present to you....the build that FINALLY will get completed without any issues (i hope) or rather i should say....the build that better get completed without any issues.

Spec sheet as always:
Processor: Intel Core i5 3570K (arrived)
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 16GB 1600Mhz CL9 (carried over from the SR-2 Build)
Motherboard: ASRock z77 OC Formula (have yet to order)
Graphic Card: ASUS GTX 690 (Already own)
Power Supply: Thermaltake Tough Power 1500W (way overkill i know but im not in the mood to buy a new psu right now)
Casing: Silverstone TJ-07 (Already Own)
HDD: 128GB OCZ Octane as Boot Drive + 3 x 256GB OCZ Vertex II SSD's (carried over from SR-2) + 1TB WD Green for content. (Already Own)

Im not a fan of air cooling so water cooling specs are:

CPU Block: EK Supreme HF Water Block (carried over from the SR-2 Build)
RAM Block: Bitspower Universal Ram Block for 4 Dimms
Pump: Swiftech MCP-655 (carried over from the SR-2 Build)
GPU Block: EK FC-690 CSQ Full Cover Nickel+Acrylic Block, with GTX 690 Backplate
Radiator: XSPC RX480 (carried over from the SR-2 Build)
Reservoir: EK Multi Option RES 250 (carried over from the SR-2 Build)
Fittings: Bitspower Compression fittings as always (carried over from the SR-2 Build)
Coolant: Mayhems Pastel Sunset Yellow (the best bit)
Tubing: Danger Den Clear Tubing

The build is gonna be in black and yellow, the casing is with a friend of mine since a month and a half now (ive been planning this build for almost 2 months) and hes done some interesting work on it (different than what you've seen before hopefully). Ill share some ideas in coming days of what ive planned to get done on the casing. Motherboard is most probably arriving in September, water cooling has been ordered and its been shipped today so that will come by a week or two as well and i got the processor today so majority of the stuff has been sorted out.

But of course a build log is not interesting without any pictures in the first post, so here's a slight teaser. There are still some finishing touches that need to be done on this.

These are the Gelid Fans that i used in my second last TJ-07 Build, but since these come in blue and blades are UV reactive, and also the fact that yellow fans are a pain in the ass to find, i got them painted. As i said that the they still needs some finishing touches but overall i really like the look especially when they're spinning. I have black and yellow coloured MDPC sleeving from before, so i wont have to wait for that, but i wont be sleeving the psu wires. I have ordered the bitfenix extension cables which will be sleeved and used instead and of course it will be heatshink less sleeving as im currently doing in my server build which is turning out to be like this:

I guess thats about it, so let the comments and questions roll in. Thanks for watching:)

After a long time i present to you some pics of the things that have arrived. The whole build is delayed because of the motherboard which should be arriving soon....so when that comes in....updates would be more frequent.

In the mean time performance pcs and stuff from MDPC arrived.

and so the 24 pin connector got completed. I managed to damage one of the pins on a wire the other day so i couldnt complete it then. Had to re crimp it before carrying on.
